Rapides High School Reviews

What I like about Rapides High School is that whatever comes our way, everyone is willing to help each other out. Also, the unity of the school is what makes it unique. The teachers and staff are excellent, and the overall environment is somewhere every student should want to be. I am a senior this year, so I am saddened that I will be departing soon. I love my school, and say that with pride. I will always remember the memories that I have had ever since I started as a freshman. Leaving will be the most emotional part, departing from my friends and my close teachers. Overall, I appreciate what the school has offered for me and I will cherish it forever.

I like the school because it is small. Therefore, everybody knows everybody-students and staff. I would like to see my school grow in regards to education and extra curricular activities. Rapides could add more sports and clubs and have more involvement in activities that benefit good students.
I love Rapides High School because it is a friendly, down-to-earth environment with the best people and atmosphere.
